This Sunday – Fifth Sunday after the Epiphany

This Sunday

Jesus said, “You are the salt of the earth; but if salt has lost its taste, how can its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything, but is thrown out and trampled under foot.
“You are the light of the world. A city built on a hill cannot be hid. No one after lighting a lamp puts it under the bushel basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven.
–Matthew 5.13-16

  • What is wisdom? How do you get wisdom?
  • Can you recall a moment when you faced a decision in having to do the ‘right’ thing? How did you decide?
  • Do you think God calls us into a life of requirements or way of life together? Is there a difference between them?
  • Do you believe that you are a light of the world? What holds you back from letting others see it?

Seeing clearly is important, but seeing clearly and not acting or moving or living isn’t really seeing at all.  Words and deeds are important, and tonight at Trinity Commons you can join us at 6 pm to hear why we need both words and deeds to live out our faith with one another.  Both are important, as are the gifts and light you have to share with others.  This week will be about sharing what we have, seeing and doing, so join us tonight to reflect and stay for dinner thanks to our good friend Martha Bains.

–Thomas
